Metabolite Identification
Common NameMethyl 4-methylpentanoate
DescriptionMethyl 4-methylpentanoate, also known as fema 2721 or methyl isobutylacetate, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as fatty acid methyl esters. Fatty acid methyl esters are compounds containing a fatty acid that is esterified with a methyl group. They have the general structure RC(=O)OR', where R=fatty aliphatic tail or organyl group and R'=methyl group. Based on a literature review a small amount of articles have been published on Methyl 4-methylpentanoate.
